Red Sky in the Morning, Sailors Take Warning

On the morning of January 16, the Presence of the Lord was strong in a somewhat different way. As I gave praise and worship, I was moving around the Worship Room covered with my tallit and with my hands lifted up in thanksgiving and total surrender. Suddenly I was stopped in place and felt the power and presence of the Lord falling on me like a waterfall.

I stood still (barely able to continue to stand) as this flow covered me and flowed through me. It was awesome! I had entered His presence this morning to thank Him for breaking the power of the enemies of Israel in France. I thanked Him for showing Himself strong in revealing His displeasure at what the nations were trying to do to His people and His land. I was surprised when He broke into my thanksgiving to express His gratitude to all those who were interceding for Israel. If you have been interceding, the Lord is pleased with what you have done and are doing for His Kingdom. Amen?

Suddenly I had an open vision. In the vision, I was standing in a room I had never seen before. I was looking out into the night through the only window in the room. It was totally dark outside. Suddenly a lion raised up and began to claw at the window with His powerful front paws. The light from the room illuminated the lion which appeared to be pure white in color. I had no fear. I understood that the Lion of the Tribe of Judah covered with the Spirit of Holiness was desiring to be let into our lives.

As I looked at the lion and pondered how to let it in, I saw a beautiful sunrise in the distance. The sky literally seemed to catch fire as the sun rose. Then the land below also seemed to be on fire. The sky appeared to be filled with deep red colors in the clouds and on the land as the amber fire of His Glory began to rise. I remembered an old saying my father taught me: “Red sky at night – sailors delight. Red sky in the morning – sailors take warning.”

Jesus also spoke of this in Matthew 16:2-3a, He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’”

The warning has been given. Storms are coming, and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5) wants to come in now in order to protect us from the wrath to come.

For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10)

I want to let the lion come in with the full power of the Lord to save us from the wrath. How about you? Are you ready to receive a greater outpouring of fire, love and protection in this season?

In the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established………with all the warnings posted of soon coming judgments (very soon)……we all need to draw nigh unto our King…..for the trail gets rockier and rougher from here. Yet, during the midst of it all……He wants our hands lifted up in praise and worship and our tongues testifying of His Great Goodness and Salvation.

I shall call to the leaders of this land and i will send them for judgment oh yes I the Lord God will.

Jer:6 vs 19
Hear, O earth!
Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people—
The fruit of their thoughts,
Because they have not heeded My words
Nor My law, but rejected it.

Just a note that the weather for the Presidential Inauguration looks to be cloudy and rainy on January 20th. That could be the right ingredient for a rainbow to shine for the New President. Keep an eye to the sky for God to show his blessing on Donald Trump with a rainbow that can only come from God.

I have been feeling the Holy Spirit on me in a different way than I used to experience. Lots of times I feel him heavy on my shoulders like a lead apron over me but more recently I feel that heavy cloaking on my actual heart. I actually feel him covering me as I write this! Love it!

Here is also a testimony for all to share with unbelievers.

Awesome. I love how He directly interacted and gave His feedback to all who were preoccupied, praying, and fasting for Israel. You’re welcome, Father! You’re more than welcome! It’s the least we can do to show our gratitude for all You are doing for us! Holy, holy, holy, You are so gracious and holy!
